The Canberra Raiders are pleased to announce the signing of rising star James Tedesco on a three year contract from the beginning of the 2015 season.
Tedesco has played just 25 games in the NRL and rumours suggest his new deal is worth around $1.9 million.
Their current fullback, Anthony Milford is shifting to the Broncos as of next season, meaning the Raiders had cash to spend.
Another key player who is reportedly in talks with Canberra is Bulldogs’ captain, Michael Ennis.
Canberra Raiders CEO Don Furner said the signing of Tedesco was a marquee one for the club and said the Raiders had been following his progress though his junior years and were thrilled to have him sign with the Raiders.
“James is an outstanding young talent who we see as a big signing for the Raiders and we look forward to him joining the club at the beginning of the 2015 season,” Furner said. “The Raiders have followed James’ progress from his days at St Gregory’s College Campbelltown and we know being from Camden, James will fit into the lifestyle and culture here in Canberra.”
“We wish him a successful season for the remainder of 2014 with the Wests Tigers and look forward to him joining us for pre-season 2015.”
